libvirtd or QEMU ? I don't see why libvirtd would SEGV for a 'be' keyboard, but QEMU certainly might if it were not supported. QEMU only supports a handful of keymaps (see /usr/share/qemu/keymaps) and I dont think 'be' is one of them. Our recommendation is to never set the '-k' /keymap option at all these days. Recent QEMU / KVM and GTK-VNC releases support a VNC extension for sending raw keycodes, instead of localized keysyms. Thus is best to leave off the keymap in the config, and just configure it inside the guest OS.
